Love to Research?

With our library temporarily closed due to COVID, we have fellow members who are unable to access a computer to conduct their family research. If you are interested in helping a fellow member with growing their family tree during this time, we would be happy to connect you with those in need. If you can help, just click here to fill out the Volunteer Application. Be sure to put “family research” in the “Other skills?” box.

Looking for Rogue Digger Contributors

 Have you found a technique or resource that has helped you in your research or that might help others? Have you discovered something interesting in local history or genealogy that you would be willing to write about and share with our membership? If so, our publication, The Rogue Digger, needs you! The Rogue Digger is a genealogical periodical that reports information helpful to members and researchers by sharing the results of genealogical investigations, especially those related to the Rogue Valley or to our membership. Submissions can be a mere page long or up to 10 pages long, with or without photos or illustrations. If you have an idea but don’t quite know how to pull it together, our editor can advise and help; contact her at caradavisjacobson@gmail.com.

 eNews Submissions

Members are invited and encouraged to write articles and/or submit photos for the eNews that are relevant to genealogy research, RVGS, and/or JCGL. The eNews is published on the first of each month. The deadline for article submission is the 20th of the preceding month. Send articles to enews@rvgslibrary.org
